state of arm port

suihkulokki rambling - Fri, 08/06/2007 - 7:57pm
All doom and gloom? far away from that.

The good:

* Arm port is now third most popular port according to popcon.
* This mostly thanks to the popularity of Linksys NSLU-2, a tiny 80€ computer able to run Debian. Do you have a old pentium sucking up electricity in your closet? Do a service to earth and replace it with a NSLU-2!

When having trouble or a problem with kpilot, go ahead and kill kpilotDaemon. It either helps or is just very satisfying.

تأتي من آخر الشارع محلِّقة. يفرد جناحه فتنزل تحته. تتموج حتى يأخذ جناحه شكل جسمها، وينطبع الدفء على كتفها. تتنهد وتستكين وتنام فوراً. في حلمها هو مروج خضراء حانية، وشموس مُداعِبة، ونسمة ظليلة، ونهر نهِم، يغمرها فتذوب. تفتح عينيها فتراه: في فمه قمحة صغيرة، وفي عينيه حب كبير. تبتسم وتفتح فمها، فتأخذها وتأخذه.

تناتيف من حياتى - ماعت - Fri, 08/06/2007 - 4:24pm
قعدت متنحة فى باب اوضتى, سامعة كل تكة بيعملها عقرب الساعة و هو بيتحرك, غير كدة مافيش اى حركة تانية فى البيت. حتى القطط تخلوا عنى و ناموا ولا صوت ساعات بارتاح فى احساس العزلة ده. كأن البيت بتاعى انا بس, امشى فيه براحتى, املى البانيو و ادخل اقعد فيه حبة, و بعد اما اغسل شعرى و اسلكه افتح على جسمى مياه ساقعة تفوقه

Installing The PHP-MSSQL Module On CentOS 5.0

Installing The PHP-MSSQL Module On CentOS 5.0

As you might have noticed on Centos 5.0, there is no PHP-MSSQL module/extension available in the default yum repositories. So if you want to use it you can alter the PHP binary or you can compile an mssql module/extension. In this article I will explain how to compile the mssql module/extension.


Abunimah: It’s not just the occupation

The Arabist Network - Fri, 08/06/2007 - 2:59pm

The great Ali Abunimah has another excellent reflection on the debate around 1967 that cuts through the bullshit:

“Forty years ago today was the last day the citizens of Israel were a free people in their own land,” wrote Ha’aretz columnist Akiva Eldar on June 4. “It was the last day we lived here without living other peoples’ lives.”

بحس إن إبتسامتك اللى بحبها أوى و اللى باجى مخصوص علشانها

Tony Blair, the dictators’ sharmouta

The Arabist Network - Fri, 08/06/2007 - 11:32am

Tony Blair on the recent allegations that Saudi Prince Bandar pocketed a $2 billion commission on an arms deal with BAe:

“This investigation, if it had it gone ahead, would have involved the most serious allegations in investigations being made into the Saudi royal family,” Blair said at a meeting of the Group of Eight nations in Germany.

Shame on you, Tabsir

The Arabist Network - Fri, 08/06/2007 - 10:55am

Without wanting to get into the recent decision by the British Academics’ Union to pass a motion encouraging a boycott of Israeli universities and academics (I fully support this show of solidarity which remains, after all, optional and provides a course of action for selective boycott of academics who are in bed with the Israeli security establishment), I was rather dismayed to see this critic of the boycott use a picture of Nazi persecution of Jews in the 1930s.

Consumers Are Killing the Welfare State

Same Shit, Different Day - Fri, 08/06/2007 - 9:44am
Consumers Are Killing the Welfare State. Some excerpts, if you don’t want to read the whole thing:

The average shopper at Karstadt, Metro and Lidl is a downright globalization fanatic. He compares price and service and always goes for what’s cheapest. In doing so, he destroys massive numbers of jobs in Europe -- including, eventually, his own.

Nowadays, almost everything money can buy can be produced without the extra ingredient that we call the welfare state.
